This video is of the Wyoming Conservation Corps (WCC) during Orientation Week. This intensive training week offers students the opportunity to get to know one another and to begin working together in groups, training and gaining the necessary skills to go into the field. This year's training was no exception. Orientation Week was held at Curt Gowdy State Park in Laramie County where WCC crew members camped together, and conducted more than 800 hours of work for the park in just three days, including building new mountain bike trails for the public.

"Leadership in public service" is the motto of the WCC, with Wyoming's residents as the beneficiaries of the crews' hard work enhancing public lands. From maintaining habitats for wildlife and mitigating bark beetle impacts on the forests -- to creating recreational trail systems and restoring historic sites, this is the work of the Wyoming Conservation Corps. The WCC lives up to its motto by providing leadership opportunities to the students of the University of Wyoming, under the Environment and Natural Resources program.
